Why is Wade one the best shot blockers....
 
I see the general consensus on these forums is that Wade is one of the best blockers of all time...why is this? Is it because he's shorter than your typical blocker?

Also is this just limited to SGs and not best overall?

He's one of the best shot blockers for a non big ever, due to his timing, anticipation and long arms.

That's what makes him great.

Probably because he blocks a lot of shots as a 6-4 sg? Not sure how this is confusing for you. Though in general people and players don't realize how long his arms are. He has an incredible wingspan for his size.

Not confusing. Was trying to get a more.in depth answer to my question. Your last 2 sentences succeeded in this.

Wade's a great help defender and weak side shot blocker because he's an absolutely LAZY man defender. He sags and helps out real well.

He's essentially the exact opposite of Kobe.

Kobe being a show pony gets up to play man defense against big name players, and he's great at it when he tries. He conserves energy in team defense and rotations. Basically is a lazy team defender.

LeBron is a great rotation defender. He's a decent help defender, but he wreaks havoc in passing lanes. When he tries he's a decent man defender, better than Wade in that regard, worse than Bryant when both are geeked up to play it. He actually usually lets his man beat him and attempts to recover with his length. Also to not draw fouls.

On average LeBron is the most consistent defender of the three. But he isn't as exceptional at any particular aspect as either Wade with weak side help / blocking shots, or Kobe's man defense.

The defensive abilities of the 3 best post MJ perimeter players in a nut shell.

He has the same timing, athleticism, length and anticipation that all the great shot blockers have, the only thing holding his BPG numbers back is the postion he plays. His ability is there.
